Anu Dwivedi had been suffering from kidney disease when, just seven months ago, she was told her disease had progressed and she would have to live her life on dialysis unless she found a kidney transplant. Anu was just one of over 80,000 people in need of a kidney transplant and finding a donor seemed like an impossible feat.
Her daughter, Kirti, a social media addict, kept friends and family up-to-date about her mother’s status through Facebook and Twitter, thinking maybe someone else would answer her call for help, and they did. One of her twitter followers instantly reacted and wanted to help after she lost her father to cancer. Not only did she find a willing donor but a perfect match.
